    Hi! You were talking about finding a new blog design and I have a tip for you. I recently bought a blog template for photographers from ProPhoto. Their URL is: http://www.professionalphotographertheme.com/ I customized it into a blogsite for myself. It's not as fancy as the custom designs like Jessica Claire but it works great for me. I'm still learning and making it better but it's not to shabby if you ask me. Ha!

    Wow Brenda! That is a great find. Thanks for sharing!!!

    I second the ProPhoto vote! I am actually beta testing a FANTASTIC new theme that is completely customizeable...and I know NOTHING about web design...it's wonderful. Check out my blog at www.sbphotoblog.com to see what I've done with my blog after only 2 days of working with this sweet new theme.

    Yes, ProPhoto is great - big photos too, much more economical.

    Question: How do you track the amount of folks who have you in an RSS feed? I use Google Analytics already but don't think I can see that stat. Thanks for the blog - love this!

    Hi Aviva, I just use the feedburner site to manage the RSS subscribers. http://www.feedburner.com

    Oh that's good to know - I'm usually afraid to post pictures of the kids in case the parents have privacy issues. I suppose I could password protect them, and then email the mom with the link and the password and leave it up to her whether or not she gives it out?

    Good to know some people are okay with it!

    Thanks, Jessica!

    I just want to say I've been following your blog for a while now and have learned a ton about the photography business from your sharing. I'm in the process of switching careers from the IT world to become a pro-photographer. It's a very challenging process and blogs like yours really help. In fact, I am in the process of creating a similar blog on my path to becoming pro. Keep up the awesome work and hope to do more networking with you and other amazing photographers in the future.

    I have another tip! I too use Google Analytics but didn't always like that I couldn't see my RSS Feed stats. I found a great WordPress Plugin called StatPress. To find it browse to: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/statpress/ This is FREE!!! It tracks my visitors, pageviews, and feeds! Gives me tons of information about what my visitors do and where they come from. I can also "SPY" on each visitor by tracking them through their IP address and see what pages they hit during their visit. Very cool! What I like best is that it's all right in my WordPress Dashboard! Check it out!
